The regular route which Lindbergh will follow on the coming trip strikes boldly over 500 miles of water fiom Cuba to Jamaica, then across another 650 miles of sea from Jamaica to Colombia.

Gifford Pinchot, speaking before the American Academy of Political and Social Science last night, said, electric power and electric appliance companies could contribute to industrial recovery by lowering prices.
